Help us find the bold and the brave
The prestigious The Australian Financial Review 100 Women of Influence Awards return in 2018 and this year, for the first time, the program will be expanded to include a new Women of Influence alumni projects initiative.
The idea is to harness and galvanise the expertise and experience of previous winners to develop projects that can have impact on the wider community.
The Financial Review is delighted to announce that the awards, which have run since 2012, will open for nominations on May 29. Nominate yourself or someone you know at afrwomenofinfluence.com. au. The winners will be revealed at a gala dinner in Sydney on October 17, so mark your calendars!
The 100 Women of Influence Awards will continue the tradition of celebrating the bold, energetic women who capture the spirit of progress. Some of the past overall winners include Moya Dodd (pictured), chairman of FIFA’s Women’s Football Taskforce and a partner at law firm Gilbert + Tobin, Ann Sherry, executive chairman of cruise ship operator Carnival Australia, and Elizabeth Broderick, chair of UNICEF Australia and former Sex Discrimination Commissioner.
“We are thrilled to be again be celebrating highly talented, dedicated women who are leading change at work and in the community,” says Michael Stutchbury, editor-in-chief of the Financial Review.
Each community project will be led by an alumna. WOI alumni are invited to volunteer their time to help bring it to life.
